    Did Beli hurt our offense

    It's well known now that in the superbowl he made it clear he wanted to stop Nicks and Cruz. Will every other defense use his statement to defend the Giants?

    Fear from such a great coach, speaks higher than watching these men play.

    doubt it we have seen that hynoski can be a receiving threat out of the backfield as well as bradshaw and hopefully wilson. this can be advantageous for the rookie randle; or jerrnigan, hixon and barden whoever wins the 3 wr spot.

    How did stopping Nicks and Cruz work out? If the league wants to follow a losing formula so be it. Everything is fluid and last year's formula is different from what we will see this year. It is a chess match and we play it very well.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    remember tho, ballard got hurt. i think what was key in the sb was that beli felt the disparity from nicks/cruz to the next options was huge.

    that wont work now that we got bennett, randle, wilson, healthy hixon, and a 2nd year JJ.

    The options after nicks and cruz are gonna be enough to win games for us imo.

    The teams we play will watch film and draw up a defensive game plan. Belichick's comments about Nicks and Cruz are just stating the obvious.

    Of course defenses have to focus on Nicks & Cruz first. But that should open opportunities for other guys. And we have an abundance of guys waiting for their chance to shine.

    I'm stoked for this season. Can't wait to see who becomes the next great contributor.

    It worked about as good as "We are going to let eli beat us" did in 2007. Worked great for us!

    Re: Did Beli hurt our offense

    The great thing about the Nicks/Cruz combo is that defenses don't know which one to cover more. You're talking about two #1-level receivers on any team in the league both playing for the same team. It's basically the wideout version of Gronk/Hernandez. Teams that have a super shutdown corner like the Jets are used to putting that corner on the #1 wideout, but doing that against the Giants will leave another #1 wideout wide open. If you devote extra personnel to make sure both are sufficiently covered (like BB did), you leave the field wide open for a 3rd WR, TE, or even the fullback to make a play. And both Nicks and Cruz can catch in traffic if Eli is throwing them the ball...
